So you’re planning to study a performance of a Shakespeare play! Perhaps you have an essay assignment, or you’ve been cast in a role in a performance, or you’ve accepted the responsibility of designing, costuming, or even directing a specific script. However, you don’t know where to start.
This module will guide you through the process of studying a play in performance, from the initial point of choosing a performance to the final write-up about the performance, whether it’s a program note, a review, a critical essay, advice to an actor or director, etc. Along the way, you’ll visit different parts of this site, and get to know the resources that are housed here.
